Robeline News

The Village of Robeline Council was informed by Mayor Gordon O’Con at the monthly meeting on Oct. 19 that the village had qualified for a public entity energy efficiency grant. The grant will come from the Louisiana Public Service Commission. It will cover four new energy efficient LED lights in the village park. With time falling back this weekend I know many Robeline residents will appreciate the new lighting when the project is complete.

Mayor O’Con and the Robeline Little League will hold a Thanksgiving Dinner in the park on Nov. 18 from 3-6 p.m. If you plan to attend you’re asked to please RSVP by Nov. 15 by calling (318)471-8821 or (318)652-4265

The Provencal Fall Festival is right around the corner on Nov. 11. The festivities kick off at 10 a.m. with a children’s parade, with the Festival Parade at 2 p.m. The Grand Marshalls for the parade will be local Veterans. I think that’s an awesome way to show our veterans that their community appreciates their service to our country.

Children’s Parade at walking track at 10 am

Scavenger Hunt at 10:30 am

Pie Eating Contest at 11 am

Queen’s Tea at 11:30 am
